I'll have to try as soon as I get a little more adventurous with MP!

Ok, apparently by this I actually meant "tonight". I used your wonderful tute and voila!

I wish I had used a little more apple FO in the middle layer, but overall I'm so happy with them! They smell so yummy! Thanks a ton, letusplay, you rock and I can't wait for your next projects!  Cheesy

WOW! That looks BEYOND awesome!

FO is fragrance oil-synthetic scents.

MP is melt and pour-the kind of soap you buy at craft stores, ,elt down, and pour into molds.

Melt and pour doesnt need to cure!

They are ready to give!

Also, melt and pour needs to be airtight until used. Plastic or shrink wrap.

First I cut up and boiled the carrots in water until they were mushy.

The I drained them and used my stickblender to whip them up.

I used half the amount of water my recipe called for, and mixed up my lye water. Added to oils.

THEN at trace I added the other half of the water required, but as pureed carrots.

Try a sugar and safflower oil scrub. You can leave it unscented (safflower isnt strong smelling) or if you want a scent add a tiny bit of EO or FO.

Vitamin E oil is NOT a preservative.

It is an anti-oxidant.

 It helps some oils from going bad.

For scrubs, you need a REAL preservative, when water gets in there, it breeds bacteria. No vitamin E oil will help you there. Trust me, I wouldn't then be paying extra for Phenonip

I shred while still fresh. I am impatient and hate waiting.

I rebatch two ways

1. cook my shreds with the tiniest bit of liquid. I generlly use bout  tsp. per pound.

2. This is my favorite way- make  small batch of plain soap. (I do  pound) Add shreds. (I use 3-4 pounds shreds) stickblend until smooth and traced. Add fragrance/additives.

You really need a preservative for both, once water hits those puppies...
Breeding ground for bacteria!

I prefer sugar because it's gentler and doesn't burn of scrapes and cuts.

Thanks! You mean the texture and color of my soaps? Or scrub?
